>>> welcome to "this week in defense news." i'm vago muradian. after more than a decade after war, marine snipers in afghanistan say they need better weapons and ammunition. we talk to one reporter who is embedded with marine sharp shooters in action. but first over a career spanning more than 60 years few have earned a more formidable reputation as an analytical thinker than harold brown who was the nation's 14th defense secretary during the carter administration. a true prodigy he earned hi doctorate in physics from columbia university when he was just 21. he started his career at livermore lab in california and eventually moving to the pentagon where he became the director of defense research and engineering then air force secretary and eventually defense secretary. his ability to handle a staggering workload are legend including read and annotating 400 page briefing books overnight. during the career brown shaped fighters like the f-15 and f-16 that remain the air force's backbone fleet today. and championed jointness among the military serv before the failed iran hostage resc
graham, final question, can chuck hagel become secretary of defense if he's the president's nominee? >> a lot of republicans asking hard questions, i don't think he's going to get many republican votes. i like chuck, but his positions, i didn't know all of them. are out of the mainstream and well to the left of the president. i think it will be a challenging nomination, the hearings will matter. >> if i were in the senate on the armed services committee, and he was nominated i would have some serious questions to ask him. >> i think senator engle will not be nominated or not be confirmed. the concede in the obama white house was these are republicans. on foreign policy, he's been way to the left of president obama. >>> former nebraska senator chuck hagel has been leaked not nominated leaked as a potential nominee for secretary of defense, and there was already a massive counter offensive against him. it does have more substance to it, than the attacks against susan rice. a fair amount of that substance consists of insinuations. the sides are forming, there's the chuck hagel defense
to secretary of defense. he referred to the pro-israel lobby as the jewish lobby. do think it is fair to hold chuck hegel to account for that remark. >> i think that remark is troublesome. it shows at the best lack of sensitivity. at the worst, prejudice. i am concerned about the nomination. obviously chuck hegel has been at the center for many years and has good attributes. there's a lot of controversy not only with that remark, but with some of his votes. it is troublesome. i've been hearing a lot for my constituents, mainly in opposition to his nomination. >> there are two sets of things i have come up, one of them defected he declined to sign some letters in the senate that were related to issues relating to the middle east. he voted against sanctions on iran and libya. he has expressed the view that press containment might be an option. that does not seem to be in line with the president's policy or recent votes in the senate. what is your view on that? >> those things are all true. it seems there is some kind of an endemic hostility towards israel. he served in the senate for a number o
. it is mainly defense and training issues. it gets to the difference here between mr. affleck, the training of the second battalion until after there is a commitment from the congolese government to reform, versus dr. frazer's comments and mr. carafano's comments about focusing on the training. maybe it is the mission you think ought to be delayed current the other is the commitment to security reform. perhaps a good start by commenting, do you think we ought to move forward without a commitment to reform? mr. affleck, why is it important to you to have that reform first before moving forward? dr. frazer? >> i think we should move 4 right away. -- forward right away. the amount of time that it takes us to actually do a training mission, the lead time that is necessary, interagency work is necessary, it can be a very long time after the decision is made before we are actually doing that training mission. i do not think we should delay. i do not think it is a matter of policy, that we should use this issue, traded italian that can protect civilian lives -- we should not hold that up. -- creat
of murder victims will be presented in court. we hear from the defense on how it supports their case and who is see it. >> he's nailed the lid on the coffin. >> one family opens up about their experience and what this could mean for children who need loving homes. >> the made in china label is taking on a new meaning for this woman. >>> it's moving closer and will be here in the morning. inches of snow are just to the west. wyatt everhart has been monitoring the situation for days now. when do we expect the snowfall to hit because a lot of people are trying to plan their day. >> expect to wake up to the beginning of the this storm. snow showers just before dawn. most of us start with snow, and then the changeover and then it will move somewhat north. this is going to be throughout the day on saturday. it includes all of our northern count aies. hartford -- counties. hartford down through howard. not to say that areas across to kent island. you will get a few hours of snow in the morning, an inch or two of slush. temperatures now depends where you're looking at. we're below freezing in york.
? >> i think it is important to realize that self-defense does not begin at the moment of conflict. there's self-defense that the society enables through regulations, through laws that have passed, through norms it tries to establish. and one of the big things that is missing from this debate, we can go back and forth and have a conversation about whether armed security would stop anything from happening, didn't help in columbine, but the bigger question is, we as a society, what does this say when you want to put more guns in your place of education, in your place where you send your 5, 6, 7-year-old children? is that the message, the sort of society that we want to be? or do we want to take self-defense before the moment of conflict? do we want to look at legislation? do we want to put policies in place that allow us to defend ourselves before we get to a point where we say, i wish that teacher had it. by the time we get to that point, it was too late. >> hailey, were your surprised by the press conference? >> i have been optimistic for the official statement all week, and i have to say
overseas to take the risk across the ocean? >> guest: they have firearms for self-defense and the purposes and that right common law right the colonists the needed the guns here whereas most england they didn't, and so people soon came to have an enormous facility and knowledge of firearms and of course as we all know it proves the result of victory against the most powerful military country in the world with of the revolutionary war. >> host: i want to talk about that a little bit, and again i think people get different views in history, and it comes from movies or tv a lot of times. but when we have the revolutionary period what was the role of guns in the militia or these requirements that we talk about? >> guest: george washington didn't think a lot of the militia. he growled about a lot of times but also made some remarks that aloud how the militia was a useful thing to have. they could have built the continental army with the existence of the militia and people that have been in the militia and more importantly the volunteers and others who knew how to use firearms, and that was the
off the cliff. >> so you want the sequestration cuts to go ahead, even on defense. i'm just getting breaking news that the president -- >> well, just remember, on defense, we are now spending substantially more, inflation adjusted, than at the height of the vietnam war, when we were waging the cold war and we had 500,000 troops in the field. >> well, cnn has just confirmed, congressman, that the white house, the president will meet with the congressional leadership, both parties tomorrow at the white house. what do you think they need to put on the table and get done tomorrow? what do you want to hear them say? >> john, when did we stop teaching civics in our schools? the president is not supposed to be part of the deliberative process. he heads an entirely separate branch of government with an altogether different purpose. i think we need to go back to the way the government was designed to operate, and that is the deliberative function, in the legislative branch, both the house and the senate, acting independently. and then resolving their differences through conference. that proc
voted pass the tax cut and automatic cut to defense and domestic program starting in the new year. so they shifted the focus for the need for majority leader harry reid and the senate democrats to do something. >> the way the senate is fon functionm right now, not even bringing the bills upper committee is frustrating to those of us in the house that are doing the work that has to be done. if senate wants to resolution, the senate has to actually pass something on this. we have done our work. senate has to respond. >> challenge is determining what passed the republican-led house and democrat-controlled senate. fiscal conservatives say a smaller stop gap measure to avoid the cliff won't work. >> if we, in fact, do not use this period of time before right now, deal with the bigger issue and entitlements, if we just continue to kick the can down the road. the market will respond in a more permanent and negative way to our inaction. >> one thing leading republicans and democrats seem to agree on is time is running short. veteran senate democrat says there is a very small window to get som
on his agenda. one being the next secretary of defense. did you expect to see chuck hagel of all people so embattled from both sides? >> well, yes, sort of. yourn, you know that john mccain hates the guy. you know, he -- and he didn't create a lot of friends toward the end of his time and throughout most of his time as a senator. because he didn't really tow the party line on policy. he broke with republicans on the iraq war. and so he oftentimes would give democrats a way of saying what they were doing was bipartisan and then had the sheen of the veblt of a guy like hagel so it's this guy that's been a thorn in their side the whole time. now here he is he might be elevated to secretary of defense. and you could see that's going to bother the same types of people that seem to be bothered by every other person that's floated by obama. and that's mccain and graham and those fellas. >> but we've heard about this mccain not liking or hating chuck hagel. what's that about? what's their history? from one maverick to another. >> exactly. there's only so much room in the senate for mavericks. y
? >> guest: there was a common law right in england allowing people to have firearms for self-defense and other purposes issue and that right, common law right, traveled across the ocean with the colonists, and they needed the guns here, whereas in england, mostly, they did not. people soon came to have the facility, and knowledge of firearms, and, of course, as we all know, it produced the results of victory against the most powerful military country in the world at the time in the revolutionary war. >> host: i want to talk about that a little bit, and, again, people have hazy views on history, and, you know, it comes from movies or tv a lot of the time. when we had the revolutionary period, what was the role of guns in these militias or requirements that we talked about? >> guest: well, george washington didn't think a lot of the militia. he grouched about it at times, but he also made remarks that allowed how the militia was a useful thing to have and couldn't have bill the army without the existence of the militia and people in the militias, and more importantly, volunteers and ot
of that goes to defense which are own admirals and generals have said and secretary of defense would be devastating. this comes on top of -- $50 billion in one year to the defense. and it doesn't touch at all medicare and the other entitlement programs. >> gregg: biggest drivers and cost and absolutely nothing has been done about those things? >> it's criminal. she is things are going to destroy us. we can live with higher taxes, you might not think it's the best idea on the rich. i think it's a way to go about it but we can't survive we are without adjusting our entitlement reform unless it is addressed. >> gregg: jamie weinstein, it's criminal -- i didn't take it that far but you do did. >> without a fiscal cliff teal the pentagon is bracing for $500 billion but that is over the next decade and raises questions how military leaders plan to keep the nation safe. >> last friday when president obama rolled out his new plan for steering us away from the fiscal cliff there was word he did not say, that word was, sequester, the sequester would automatically cut more than a hundred billio
. >> now state and defense department officials and actor and activist ben affleck testified at a hearing on violence in eastern congo where a rebel group has terrorized people. the m-23 rebels are defectors from the army and were recently able to overtake the city of goma despite a large u.n. security presence there. the house armed services committee hosts this hearing. this is three hours. i can't help but reflect on the millions of innocent people around the world who are caught in fundamentally unjust and socially complex situations. these situations can make anyone's heart break and naturally leads one to consider the simple question what can be done. one thing it sure makes me appreciate our country. i have heard that less than 2% of the people that have ever lived here on the earth have lived under the kind of freedoms that we enjoy. we are so blessed. and when we see how innocent lives are -- how people are hurt so much by some of the thing that is are happening around the world, it just again really makes me appreciate home. the question and likewise the answer becomes more comp
defense forces, military justice, and the police. we must work to develop a more professional forces that respect human rights and protect territorial integrity in population. the defense department has provided training to the congolese military, including training of a light infantry battalion in 2010. sexual and gender based violence prevention and training were incorporated in every aspect of this effort. in addition to the ongoing training, the defense department's as included logistics, exercise participation, basic military intelligence training, humanitarian assistance and he military action. moving forward, the defense department stands ready to work with our colleagues to determine the best way ahead including providing additional infantry training. the scale of need is significant. to date we have trained one battalion with 500 soldiers and military in numbers of approximately 150,000. the capacity for assistance is limited. the congolese defense ministry has been slow to respond to our request for a corporate training and information necessary for congressionally mandated
don't need a magazine with 100 rounds in it, that's notself defense, that's not hunting. and how we can back up -- yes, people have a right to protect their family, but you don't need all of this to protect your family. he did the opposite. he said let's put armed guards in the school, let's arm teachers. let's remember now, we have seen this year education budgets cut. we don't have money to give teachers raises. we had a teachers strike in chicago. we don't have money to do things that teachers need, but we'll find money to arm them, to train them, to buy them guns, ammunition. what are we saying? so we can arm teachers, but we can't give teachers money to give them the ability to be better educators? to me that's the wrong message to send. >> two sides are looking for meaningful contributions. the fact there was a gun buy-back program, the day after christmas, 1500 rifles and handguns were taken back by police in exchange for groceries and a cash back program there in los angeles. hugely successful. meanwhile, arizona's attorney general is proposes a voluntary programs where scho

coordinator michael & son weather camera ron. the defense -- cam cameron. the defense is gone. lewis is not going to happen because nfl.com and others reporting the future hall of famer won't be activated for the final two games. john harbaugh on friday would simply say lewis was quote coming along. the team doesn't immediate with media on saturday. lewis tore the triceps eight weeks ago and could be still activated for the playoffs. >>> baseball news here, is the clock running out on a move to sign adam la roach? yes. that's what adam kilgore of the "washington post" believes. the nats wanted an answer by the new year and "sports illustrated" says the two sides aren't even close with the first base situation put together. >>> coming up stick around. "game on" is here. we're going to break it down. here we go. kristen berset, and me and a whole crew will be here. we're going to talk about rg3. how dangerous with the eagles. credit for kyle shanahan and what's the latest on the ravens and why all of a sudden they can't seem to win a football game. a lot of stuff going on here as we ge
running teams in the nfl behind him. jim haslett after losing so many star defensive players early in the year, seemed to piece it all back together and a change for the seahawks now. >> al: wilson is done for the night and matt flynn will finish it up here. he will take us to the finish line. flynn who was signed to that big contract and looked to the world that he would be the man. russell wilson just simply flat out won the job and has been the starter since the opener. >> cris: yeah, and he won it because of game altering plays. his gap plays, as russell wilson likes to call these things, and he has been sensational with them tonight. he had one turnover on a big play, but third down conversions, 11 of 12. red zone, 4 for 4. and that's a rookie. >> al: turnover on a tipped pass. in seven games in this stadium this season, he has thrown two interceptions. >> cris: he's something now. >> al: oh, yeah. >> cris: it was funny talking to pete about him. he said people warned me when i met him at the senior bowl, he goes, now, you know, be careful because you'll think he is one of tho
matter that rises immediately to the floor is who is going to be the secretary of defense. the person whose name has been floated this week is chuck hagel. republicans are trying to stop his potential nomination too, even though chuck hagel himself is a former republican senator. they think he is not right wing enough. chuck hagel does not just have critics on the right, though. on the left there is rumbling that democratic presidents should stop putting republicans in the secretary of defense job like bill clinton did with bill cohen and president obama already did once with bob gates. calling it the bizarre tradition of sorts where democratic presidents suddenly act like republicans are right, that only they, republicans, can run our national security affairs. so there is general criticism from the left that democrats should stop bolstering the myth that republicans are stronger on defense because they're republicans, and therefore, only republicans should run defense even when a democrat is president. but there is also this one very specific criticism of chuck hagel individually. i
's to be a defensive game, keep romo on the field or make them settle for field-goals. >> i agree with the defense. the redskins defense has to have a huge game and put less pressure on rg3. and don -- . >> and don 2345 told us as long as they cover the receivers and stay on romo, they will win. stay healthy and protect the quarterback. there were a lot of haters and cowboys fans stirring the pot, you know, they had a lot to say and we're not going to bother with that up. this is redskins country. thanks to those who come and thank you, lindsay. >> all right. >> see you later on. >>> meanwhile, construction on the washington redskins training camp could begin as soon as next week. they will hold the summer training camp in richmond the next eight years, part of an economic incentive deal they made with virginia. the facility is going to cost $10 million that is going to be built behind the science museum of virginia. there will be two full football folds, a field house with locker and weight rooms, a drill field and spectator areas. >>> at 6, a racy course on the 50 shades of gray is being offered
quickly. >> let's talk about that word, sequestration and there's a lot of concern about the defense cuts and the defense department, how to deal with it. leon panetta toning down the remarks saying that they would not necessarily require immediate action and could eventually mean furloughs down the road and looking at january and the cuts divided by ten years and 12 months, talking 50 billion, 60 billion in january. >> right. it's 110 billion for the year of 2013 in automatic spending cuts divided equally between defense and nondefense. on the nonentitlement or discretionary side of budget. if you look at that month by month and the point of panetta and many of the agencies can sort of fudge things for a few months, in most cases i don't think we'll see much impact of automatic spending cuts quickly. by the way, this has been somewhat underappreciated. in this small bore compromise that the president and many of the earlier interviewers talking about today. the one the president is pushing for, the sequester is pushed down the road. suspended. the automatic pay cuts as part of that deal
a lot of that money will apparently come from it defense you your opinion? >> hopefully one thing they can iron out is replace the defense sequestration cuts with other limitations in spending in other areas. would be a good thing. one of the points we do need to make is we he blue through the $2.1 trillion worth of debt ceiling increase from last august in 17 months. that is an astonishing fact. once we get this tax issue behind us and hopefully in the next couple of days, then we need to start asking the president what s your plan, senator harry reid are you going pass a budget. i really do believe that the president and the democrats really have no intention and as a result have no plan to limit the rate of growth in government and no plan to save social security and medicare and we need to start putting political pressure on them to show the american people a plan. the house passed two budgets since i have been here. they both include some proposal to save medicare. the democrats have not done that and this is really where we start turning the messaging on them and start deman
. it was a sloppy offensive but tenaciously defensive ball game. watch logan thomas. fuller lays it in there. touchdown. they beat the rutgers in overtime. 20 straight bowl games for the coach. nice win tonight for virginia tech. cgi of. it is friday, and the wizards get their fourth win of the year. the wizards got a standing ovation from fans at verizon. washington snapped an eight game losing streak. crawford came off the bench to win 37. the wizards played tough defense, rebound well. the wizards, the orlando 105-97. in florida, how about this guy? he is 10 years old and plays varsity basketball. keep an eye on number four. the little guy can shoot. this is not a joke. he plays for a private school, not governed by florida high school athletic association rules. his dad is the coach, and crazy as it is, the kid can flat out and play. there may be a little hockey after all. the nhl has upped its offer to the players association for the first time in a month. they have been steadfast at keeping players contracts to five years. they have upped it to 6, 7 if you own a player. the ready to go
. the officer resorted to shooting the armed suspect out of self- defense. baltimore county police say the officer on patrol spotted a suspicious man behind the service station just before 4:00 on sunday morning. >> he approached a man and asked him to step out from behind the business. the man refused and displayed a knife. >> authorities say the officer attempted to use his taser, but it was not effective. >> the man continued to walk toward the officer with a knife. fearing for his safety, the officer discharges weapon. >> the suspect was taken to the hospital with a single gunshot wound where he was later pronounced dead. police say it is not clear why the man was behind the service station. that is part of the ongoing investigation. the condition of the officer is not known at this time. we do know the officer has been placed on routine leave pending the outcome of the investigation, which is typical for these kinds of cases. >> city police are working to identify the body found in the inner harbor. a passer-by discovered the body floating in the harbor along pratt street this mor
reports, the president's most recent ask was for 1.2 trillion in revenue, additional savings in defense a hundred billion, that's a come bind total net savings of roughly 3.4 trillion dollars. that's close to what the economist have called for in a package. let me be quick to say what we don't know is how is the alternative minimum tax being treated because that cost about $800 billion to fix. we don't know how the other tax extenders are being treated because that cost another $800 if we're going to extend those provisions. we don't know how the dock fix is being handled because those doctors are going to take a cut of 28% if nothing is done. that cost ability $240 billion over ten years to fix. if all of those things were done an offset that would dramatically reduce the savings of this package. but we don't know. i've heard and read press reports saying that overseas contingency operations, so called war cost are being used as an offset to the minimum tax or perhaps the doc fix and that i've read may amount to as much as $800 billion. so i don't think we have sufficient information t
of defense and the state department and look at 19 high risk posts. >> i didn't want to interrupt, but i have to. so you are going to -- >> yes. >> there were repeated requests to implement security upgrades at tripoli and benghazi. as we look at this report, we know what happened. i would like to know if you intend to put in place a process that would allow for a second review of these requests by another body within the state department? it seems that requests came to one particular individual or desk and it never saw the light of day. >> yes. one of the recommendations -- look at the request and how they are given to us and how we examine those requests. we will learn from incident in libya and be clear about digging into those requests. we have begun to set up individual task to look into this. >> may ask one last question? thank you. how was this decision made and how do we avoid these types of failures for the hiring of contract guards? >> as you know, we relied on -- which we have had for 200 years. we rely on local governments to protect us. we have to do that because we do not have t
to replace secretary of defense leon panetta. joining me now to look at all this: james mann, long-time journalist and author of "the obamians: the struggle inside the white house to redefine american power"; and david ignatius, foreign affairs columnist for the "washington post." david, as we heard the president say, a well-known man around washington and foreign policy circles. what strengths does john kerry bring? >> well, the first is the one the president mentioned. he has stature, he's well-known. he's being doing foreign policy from the senate for almost three decades. he's a person well-known to leaders around the world. the second thing that people don't know as much about is that he served as an emissary for president obama in some very delicate situations. the president sent him to afghanistan to try to make a better relationship with president karzai there. kerry is widely believed to have been a success in that. he was sent to pakistan for similar mission to deal with president zardari. it's less well-known that he conveyed a message, written message to hamas to try to
, for example, if we didn't do this and if we hadn't put defense cuts also on the table and if everything was on discretionary, for example, i don't think we would have gotten anywhere. i don't think the republicans would have even come to the table and would have even ever considered taxes, but i think the reason why they are is because of the defense cuts. it's not that the republicans are opposed to spending. they have no problem spending. it just depends on what we're talking about. if it's spending for defense, they have no problem with that. >> congresswoman, thanks for joining me today. happy holidays to you and to yours. >> thank you. merry christmas to you as well, and congratulations again. >> thank you so much. i appreciate that. >>> so a not so merry christmas for senator mike. a republican from idaho arrested for dui early this morning, and it is the day before christmas. we all know that. it seems more like black friday in certain malls. we're going to tell you about those deals across the country.

defense companies. it's also other companies that get a lot in the way of government contracts, and there's companies here, get 50% or more of their sales from government contracts. really interesting stuff. it's not just, again, defense companies. you're going to see waste management in there, an environmental company. motorola in there as well. we talked to fidelity. they are concerned as well telling amists to watch for certainly insexes -- indexes and others that cover financials and others cited there. adam: i have friends saying there's no fiscal cliff, it's make believe trumped up by the media and parties to scare people, get rate, and, perhaps bring about policy that's not true. look at the companies, the fact that the government -- look at the contracts that would be canceled, those are people who would lose jobs in several months. the recession that the cbo is legitimate looking at that list. >> that's right, adam. it's interesting because it flushes out what companies basically operate on the iron lung, with an iron lung, because of the government subsidies. it was interesting
's just a democratic agenda. cuts to defense and higher taxes, what's not to love if you are a democrat? that's why they have been so slow to move. that's why the president is becoming concerned about the economy and ultimately his legacy. even though he can blame republicans in the short-term in the long term when they look back to this period this is going to attach to the president. is he feeling now an obligation to finally lead on this issue. and hopefully he will bring some democrats in the house and the senate along but it's going to have to be something that republicans can support. republicans are not going to a . and obviously so we're going to be very interested in the particulars of this as they begin to emerge. i'm just glad finally that the president is here. but to your point, it is true a lot of democrats get what they want. they get higher taxes automatically on january 1st. and they get steep cuts in the defense budget. but i will tell you what, there are an awful lot of people that would be hurt by that particularly small businesses and job creators and that's why it
controversies. >>> former republican senator chuck hagel has not been nominated as defense secretary, but members of his own party already signaling an uphill confirmation battle if he is. barbara star has more on in surprising backlash. good morning to you. i think a lot of people thought after susan rice's nomination for secretary of state went away and everybody thought, okay, here's john kerry. he's going to sail through the confirmation process. so is chuck hagel. i think a lot of people were surprised by this news. what happened? >> well, you know, in the classic washington case, people are asking the question, was hagel a trial balloon being floated that's already getting holes poked in it. not nominated yet, but all the chatter had been he was the front runner to be president obama's choice as secretary of defense. no announcement. the silence is deafening from the white house. but the opposition already mounting. a lot of criticism coming from both republicans and democrats about some of hagel's positions while he served in the senate. i have to tell you over the last severa
time from both sides of the aisle if he turns out to be president obama's pick for defense secretary. we will turn to editor mark murray. starbucks sending a message to d.c. how they are using the coffee cups to inspire lawmakers to strike a deal on the fiscal cliff. this is one of the things we thought you should know.
